I'm (obviously) new around here so go easy on me
July 5 we purchased an above ground pool 15x42 and Intex Saltwater system. About a week ago the pH and alkalinity were low so we added pH plus and alkalinity plus. The next day we have algae in the bottom of the pool. I added HTH's Algae Super Guard (I know have found out that was the wrong thing to do). HTH Customer Service said I should be shocking the pool with Shock n Swim. Is this the same thing as using the "BOOST" option on my Intex Saltwater system? I'm so confused and worried we've royally screwed this pool up already. Please tell me this can be fixed without refilling the pool ($$$)--PLEASE!!
I'm still trying to figure out all of the abbrv and lingo so if anyone responds could you spell it right out and explain it like you are talking to a first grader? LOL
